“Everyone here motivates one another.” Chris Betancourt, Los Amigos junior infielder and international student from Tlaxca, México, said he was worried that he wouldn’t be able to communicate with his teammates when he joined the team last November. He quickly became comfortable upon finding out most of the team already spoke Spanish. Betancourt began learning the game of baseball when he was eight years old and started playing games when he was 12. (Omar Sanchez / Voice of OC)
